Extraordinary NZ short films screening every weekend of the festival.

Homegrown 1 - Works on Film
Screens: Friday 11 July at 6.15pm and Saturday 12 July at 10.15am.
From the screenplay to the final edit, these six films show intelligence and beauty. They are stories of love, loneliness, friendship and survival which move comfortably at their own pace, telling their story with confidence and clarity and offering a contemporary view of NZ and our place in the world.

Homegrown 2
Screens: Friday 18 July at 6.15pm and Saturday 19 July at 2.00pm.
These 7 films are characterised by a strong spirit of innovation and skillful irreverence, this years second programme demonstrates a keen eye for drama, pathos and black humour. From the dark and delightfully tragi-comic to the achingly poignant, this line up of maverick films explore the murky side of human nature whilst demonstrating a quiet faith in compassion and even whimsy.

Homegrown 3
Screens: Friday 25 July at 5.45pm and Saturday 26 July at 2.30 pm.
The final homegrown programme is a fast fire combination of 13 highly adventurous and thoughtful approaches to drama animation and experimental film. From the melancholic to the deliciously satirical, this year's programme embodies the extraordinarily beautiful and often absurdly funny travails of human and alien conditions.

For more information about the films see the Auckland Film Festival programme via the official website.
